    So whenever I receive a text message it no longer says the senders name, it shows their phone number. Which is annoying because I then have to go thru my phone book and match up the number to see who is texting me. How do I fix this?!

    Is this something that you noticed starting happening immediately after the OTA update last week?

    mine does this as well, but ask do I want to add this number to an existing contact. I assumed it was because i had not included area code or some small difference between the two numbers.

    I used to have Handscent it was overall very great but ended up uninstalling because everytime I'd reboot my phone, it would re-send old sent texts, thus annoying a lot of ppl.
